Storage space left after Azure Stack installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    We are planning to buy new Azure Stack HW.

    The recommended disk space is:

    "4 disks. Each disk provides a minimum of 250 GB of capacity."

    After installation how much will be available for storage in Azure Stack (disk space available to create storage containers in AS)?

    Do you recommend to get even more space right now to run the upcoming TPs?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    the Storage Spaces will be created with the resiliency type Simple. So you will have 1 TB capacity minus the size of the Azure Stack VMs that are placed on the CSV.

  • Hi,

    The Azure Stack installation file is 10 GB.
    Also, maybe the following link helps with understanding storage in Azure Stack:

    However, we'd need some more time if you need the specific information.
